? >> investigators beginning paint a much fuller picture of the parents and the life this young man, tamerlan tsavraev was living and the pull between his life here in the united states and his life over in the russian caucuses, where he had been a transient, going from country to country, because of the chechen war. the m.i.t. officer shot to death by the two alleged bombers did not register in to dispatch to request a description of the suspects and did not alert dispatch he was actually responding to the two men, who apparently came up to him, totally unaware, he was ambushed in the car. shot four to five times it took police 13 minutes to find that officer. that downed officer. he did not even have time to pull at letter on his radio. and you are looking at now, are pictures of dzhokhar tsavraev. that was when he went to the convenience store. it's interesting this entire manhunt was launched because of these actions of these two men, not particularly in terms of them building a bomb, but because they seemed to have out of nowhere, ambushed this police officer and that set everything in m
held. three minutes later they stopped and stood together for one minute. then they split up. tamerlan tsarnaev headed towards the finish line. his younger brother dzohkhar blended in with a crowd of spectators near the forum restaurant. at 2:45 dzohkhar was captured by cameras placing his backpack on the ground. over the next four minutes he spent time looking at his cell phone, app picture and holding the phone near his waist. then he raised it to his ear. 30 seconds later at 2:49 p.m. the first bomb exploded near the t nosh line. the affidavit noted virtually every head turns and stares in meat direction in apparent bewi nt and alarm. blah the tapes and still photos show he left his knapsack on the y ound and moved calmly but rapidly away. nds later, the secondloded at t bomb exploded at that very spot. es nf.b.i. affidavit also provides new details about friday's tense manhunt and capture. around midnight thursday a gunman approached the driver of a mercedes s.u.v. in cambridge, massachusetts. the gunman asked "did you hear about the boston explosion? i did that." he then commandee

, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h
. what role is the family, tamerlan's wife, what role will they play in furthering this investigation along especially if the mom is giving interviews saying she believes the boys are innocent and they are basically being framed? >> the interviews with all of the family members as well as friends and acquaintances will be an important part to build that mosaic of information to allow us to truly understand these two brothers and what led them to conducting monday's attack. the mother is particularly fascinating because when she became increasingly devout tamerlan gravitated towards her and there is an interesting question about what influence she had over tamerlan and the influence he had over his younger brother. >> and there are reports of the side story that friends of tamerlan think he may have been involved in a triple murder that took place in 2011 that took the life of one of his american friends, someone described as his best friend. what are authorities saying about that investigation because it was a cold case? >> i just spoke a little while ago to the district attorney's of
the attack. the brutal killing of one of tamerlan tsarnaev's best friends unsolved since 2011 is now being reviewed with a, quote, wider group of eyes. we'll show you a controlled explosion of a pressure cooker bomb as experts work to learn all they can about these cheap and deadly devices. i'm wolf blitzer in boston and you're in "the situation room." here in boston investigators are learning more about the suspects in last week's bloody massacres. here are the latest developments. a government official tells cnn the surviving suspect told investigators the wars in afghanistan and iraq were motivating factors in the attacks. a new hampshire fireworks store confirms tamerlan tsarnaev bought two reloadable mortar kits with 48 shells but law enforcement officials say it wasn't enough for explosions of the size that occurred in boston. an 8-year-old bombing victim martin richard was buried today after a private funeral mass. his parents issued a statement saying, and i'll read it to you, we laid our son martin to rest and he is now at peace. just minutes ago the sisters of the bombing suspect
says he and his brother tamerlan -- he says brother tamerlan was the mastermind. tsarnaev's initial court appearance was today in his hospital room. he was able to speak one word, no, when asked if he could afford an attorney. he now has a public defender the court found today. he's alert, mentally competent and lucid. joining me is jake tapper live in boston. pretty dramatic developments late in the day here. from what we now believe, dzhokhar tsarnaev may have told the investigators in written answers, is that right? >> reporter: that's right. a u.s. government official tells me that according to these preliminary interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar tsarnaev and the u.s. government is going to have to double back and check all of this information, but according to these preliminary interviews, what dzhokhar tsarnaev is conveying to investigators is the following. one, that there were not foreign terrorist groups involved in this terrorist plot, that it was just the two of them. two, that there was a real online component to this radicalization done through videos, wat
dianne feinstein said she'll look into the 2011 questioning of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev. a number of lawmakers are going after the fbi, questioning if the agency failed to notice any red flags there. and in another classified hearing later this evening, leaders from the fbi, homeland security and the national counter terrorism center will brief house members on the case as well. that is also a classified hearing. earlier today, janet napolitano on how they left the u.s. for russia. >> is it true that his identity document did not match his airline ticket and if so, why did tsa police the discrepancy? >> even with the misspelling under our current system, there are redundancies, and so the system did ping when he was leaving the united states. >> meanwhile, vice president joe biden is going to attend tomorrow's memorial for the murdered m.i.t. police officer sean collier. the family of the 8-year-old victim martin richard, held a private funeral this morning. they will hold a public memorial in the coming weeks. local hospitals say 45 people remain in medical care. that i
shooting at watertown that left another officer wounded, would also kill dzhokhar's brother, tamerlan tsarnaev. more of what the suspect is telling investigators. the 19-year-old claims no foreign terrorist group were involved in the attack, he and his brother were self-radicalized jihadists and the most vation was to defend is lal. reporters gathering new details now. there's a lot to tell you. joe johns, crime in justice correspondent. joe, let's talk about dzhokhar tsarnaev, what he is saying that his brother was the driving force behind the bombings. obviously, investigators have more questions about his claims. lawmakers lawmakers in washington and a lot of questions as well. >> reporter: certainly true, anderson. talking to law enforcement officials this morning, there's two steps. first the question, of course, is, what exactly the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities? the second and related question is, how much of what the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities do they in fact believe, what's verifiable, what they can check out, or what he may be saying beca
was known about the older suspect who is now dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, and this trip ta hat he took to rusa last year. law makes want to know why is it that tamerlan tsarnaev was able to make this trip in the first place. should he have been stopped before he went overseas? when overseas what did he do? what was he up to when he was over there? some of this is stemming from some of the conflicting stories, quite frankly, chris, from federal officials over tamerlan tsarnaev's status. senator lindsey graham, republican from south carolina, told reporters yesterday that tamerlan was on a no-fly list, that he was on some sort of terror watch list a federal law enforcement official has told cnn that is not the case. and senator charles grassley, graham's republican colleague in the senate, asked secretary janet napolitano from the department of homeland security about the discrepancy earlier this morning. here's bit of that exchange. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia, and if you weren't, the reason? >> the travel in 2012 that you're referring to? yes, the system pinged when h
key question, why was this jihadist leader on the older brother's youtube channel. tamerlan tsarnaev had apparently posted and removed this clip, found under the subheading terrorists, it shows the militant who was killed in december. tamerlan tsarnaev had created this youtube channel in august 2012, shortly after a visit to russia. did the suspect have any connections to the jihadist group? could he have received orders from them? still unknown. what we do know, according to members of this boston area mosque, is that he became increasingly radical in recent years. in january, he had an outburst during friday prayers. a mosque leader had been praising mohammed along with martin luther king, jr. >> some people said that he said something to the effect that you cannot, you know, compare or make a parallel between a prophet and a non-muslim. some people said that he referred to the person who was giving the sermon as a hypocrite. >> reporter: as investigators wait for answers, loved ones say good-bye. at a church in medford, massachusetts, hundreds of family and friends said good-bye t
that the fbi has told you that they missed tamerlan leaving the country and going to russia because maybe his name was misspelled, that was one of the reasons given. we just heard from secretary napolitano that he did indeed, and these are her words, ping when he left the united states, and then the investigation seemed to be cleared during his time away. where ills the discrepancy? what is the truth? because it goes to the question, is our system working or isn't it? >> clearly it's not working. i'm dumbfounded wither 4 answer. i was told dar -- with her answer. i was told two nights ago in march they got a letter from the russian intelligence services that the older brother was a radical islamist, watch out for him. they claimed to have interviewed him. they interviewed his family. they went to the school he was attending and interviewed people. they sent the file back to russia in october of 2011, asked for more information and they never heard from them again and they claimed the system did not pick him going to russia in january of 2012 because the name was mis misspelled. now i hear fro
on their own. dzhokhar, not surprisingly is saying he was following his older brother tamerlan and tamerlan was the one who was the driving force behind this. in addition, there's an indication from the interviews that the brothers were self radicalized on-line. they were getting information from videos on-line, you tube videos on-line but not from communication or e-mail the way the ft. hood shooter was but they were very much self starters, self radicalized. the older brother, it seems from preliminary investigation, to have been motivated by jihad, traditional jihad motivation and political implications that they are under attack and jihad dis need to fight back. this is from preliminary interviews with this individual, with dzhokhar tsarnaev. >> the interviews have been limited. >> very limited. everything needs to be checked out. the investigators will follow up. these are individuals who knew a lot of people and had a lot of connections. they weren't shut ins on their own. they were people who knew a lot of people. everything needs to be followed up on. this is what dzhokhar tsarnaev
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
. they had the names of tamerlan. they investigated tamerlan and he was part of a big bomb plot. did the fbi fail? i would say they probably -- something sliped through the cracks for them. it wasn't their most shining moment. however, think about bush-cheney and think about obama administration. fbi under bush-cheney, would they have been -- would they have interrogated him? would they have brought him in and spent more time with tamerlan years ago in 2009 when they had his name on the list? when his name popped up on the list would they have gone after them, or was there pc stuff at work where the obama administration says, look, we are not going to go after him right now. he has been cleared. let's not take a look now and let's not follow him. my concern is the treatment of terror under obama is different than the treatment of terror under bush-cheney. obama doesn't want to call it terror. he wants to call it -- i don't know. >> the fort hood one was classified as workplace violence. i don't know if they would claim a do over on that one. greg, you talked about the fbi on saturday when we
details about the older brother, tamerlan, and his six-month trip overseas to russia, that area, as he became increasingly more devout in his religion and radicalism. >>> here in washington, the marathon bombings have already started to change the debate on things like -- you knew this was coming -- immigration. >>> finally, life started to return to normal this weekend in boston. i was up there as the slow healing begins. this is "hardball." as we say up there, "hardball." the place for politics. >>> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was of course, white house spokesman jay carney short by before 1:00 p.m. today making clear the boston suspect will not be treated as an enemy combatant. as some republican senators includes lindsey graham called for. senator graham challenged them saying the decision they made premature. let's listen. >> here's my concern. as a lawyer for over 30 years, civilian and military, i strongly support the concept that no criminal defendant s
and tamerlan, the older brother, stood up and argued. then in january there was a praise for martin luther king jr. and he got up and called someone a hypocrite. he had to leave. >>gretchen: ostensibly this younger guy didn't know anything about the bombing until a week before. if that is true, that lends to what we were discussing this morning that he was just an underling. it brings out the story that the parents were absent. the parents had gone back to russia and this 19-year-old kid was able to be swayed by the older brother. it appears he was the one that radicalized himself. i'm not saying he's not to blame at all. >>brian: there's no way you should believe -- everyone's apparently running with this story. you've got to be kidding me. you question him for 90 seconds as he's come out of a harrowing situation like this. he's in self-preservation mode. this guy needs to be questioned for a couple of weeks, needs to see if his story line is up. then you've got to drill down on it with professional interrogators. he does not need to see his miranda rights read to him in bed. laughable. >>stev
of the brothers is in fact emerging. both tamerlan and dzhokhar were born in the former soviet territory and came to the united states almost ten years ago. suspect number 1, the older brother, is the one who believed to have turned radical first about 2009 and later drawing his younger brother in a secret plot of violence and hatred. they noticed his turn toward islam in the past few years. in addition we are learning that his american wife even converted to islam for him and began wearing traditional muslim gash shortly after and we will have much more on that this hour with ann coulter. we have extremist videos posted on what we believe to be the he would toker brother's youtube channel. and the older brother traveled back to his nature i have russia in 2011 for six months. the trip is apparently under investigation by fbi officials. they never made it into the system because according to lindsay graham, it may have been misspelled. here with us is former l.a. pd fact furman and jim emerson. welcome back to hannity. >> thank you. >> mark, you have the right to romaine silent. anything you say
. it is clear that tamerlan tsarnaev had no record of him going to russia are coming back .ecause his name was misspelled it was a foreign airline. under our bill, everything will have to be a passport or machine-read. that undere guess our law the authorities would know that tamerlan was going to russia? ing on the l a p down to customs. anything that makes a requirement for machine readable gets manual in putting out of the system and improves security. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> it was a revelation on the border. we saw an apprehension. >> they knew exactly where the person climbing the fence would go. it was amazing. >> i think the woman heard senator schumer's accent and thought she was in new york. [laughter] it was a good trip. it is always good to see the border. you talked about apprehension rate. there has been concerned about metrics. is it true what we're calling for in the legislation is pretty much what you do now? someor schumer quoted statistics from several years ago. now you have more resources to do it. the net effect. .e know how many people across we can get a bett
: the about how the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev, this issue with the fbi impacted his immigration status. guest: we will learn more about this. it appears that the russian government was concerned about him. he had gone back to russia for six months in 2011 for about six months. the russian government was clearly somewhat concerned about his activities and alerted the fbi in the united states to keep an eye on him when he returned home. what has come out is the fbi did interview him and did a cursory investigation and decided there was no cause for concern. i suspect there will be a big focus on that as the investigation proceeds, why did the fbi not follow up on that. you can come up with plausible explanations. the relationship between russian law enforcement and u.s. law enforcement has not been very good over the years. so maybe it was the russian warnings were discounted. it's not clear this necessarily would have been an immigration issue. he had a green card and was entitled to come back and forth freely from the united states. if information had come out through the fbi investiga
. senator grassley actually rought this up, again, how tightened up security. 's clear that tamerlan tsarnaev, they had no record of him going to russia or coming back because his name was misspelled. by a place where we don't have regulations, a foreign airline. under our bill, everything would have to be pass -- passport or machine-read that so type of mistake could not occur. if our bill were law, isn't it a pretty safe guess that the authorities would have known that tsarnaev went to russia and came back? >> if i might, there are redundancies now in the system so there was a ping on the outbound to customs. this is my understanding, this has been kind of changing picture, but even regardless of that, anything that makes a requirement for machine-readable gets manual inputting out of the system, imprombings security. >> all right. ok. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you. >> thank you. it was a revelation to go down on the border. we actually watched and illegal border crossing while we were there. >> and an apprehension. >> as you hear. and an apprehension. a quick one, too. >>
